When it comes to acne, it doesn’t just affect teenagers—but also some adults in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and even older. Hormonal acne is women can be frustrating. It manifests as deep pimples on the cheeks, jawline, chin, and even one’s neck. It’s usually worse around someone’s period. Although the most effective treatments are prescription medications to counter when hormones flare-up, not everyone can tolerate these treatments, but help may be found in using spearmint and turmeric in one’s diet.

Spearmint has a well-known anti-androgen effect. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Spearmint modulates hormones that are increased during our menstrual cycle. These hormones then stimulate our oil glands and ultimately lead pimples around menses. Clinical studies have shown that one cup of spearmint tea twice daily has moderate effects on improving hormonal acne.

In my youth, I served as a missionary in Chennai, India. While there, I learned about turmeric. It is a very popular ingredient in India and had been long used for centuries as medicine. The taste can be a bit overwhelming, when one is not use to it, but definitely offers many health advantages when it comes to preventing acne. Also, it maybe helpful in fighting psoriasis, eczema, and even aging. One should consider adding turmeric to one’s smoothie, curry, or tea.
